An Introduction 



RY means of this booklet we present an idea of the scope and diversity 
of our work. During a period of over forty years we have demon- 
strated our ability to render satisfactory service by the design, manu- 
facture and erection of steel plate products of all kinds. That we have been 
successful is perhaps best proven by the oft repeated patronage we are 
accorded and by the large number of clients whom we have the pleasure of 
serving. 

The methods and machinery we employ are of the most modern character, 
and good working conditions assure a high standard of quality and workman- 
ship. Large fabricating shops which cover an area of nearly 26 acres, a 
complete galvanizing plant, and adequate facilities for the handling and ship- 
ping of materials, aid us to perform satisfactorily on any order, whether 
large or small. Finally, back of these facilities are thoroughly capable and 
experienced engineers who give detailed attention to each requirement. 

We invite your inquiries.
